Music

Music plays a very important role in our school. Every class from pre-school has the opportunity to explore music and to develop a love of music through their weekly music class with our specialised teacher - Annaliesa Evans.  

The younger children explore music through songs, dance and games. They learn about rhythm through clapping and marching and using percussion instruments. The older children do music appreciation classes, study composers and learn how to play the recorder and the ukulele.

We do musicals for our annual Christmas concert and our younger children have performed "The Bossy King", "Ralph The Reindeer", and "Whoops-a-Daisy Angel" to name a few.  Musicals put on by our older children have included "The Mikado", "Of Mice and Mozart", "Emile Jolie" (in the original french) and "Christmas Jazz".

We offer individual piano, violin and viola lessons. Pupils perform individually or in ensembles at our annual talent show. They may also be called upon to contribute musically at assembly.

One of our musical highlights over the years has been performing at the Arklow Musical Festival (occasionally bringing home some silverware). We also had the wonderful opportunity of performing with the Wicklow Choral Society, conducted by Frank Kelly on two occasions - Requiem by French composer Maurice Duruflé, and Carmina Burana by Carl Orff.
